The Alberta Provincial Court has rejected a racism charge levied by a former employee against the Alberta Motor Association.

Augustine Ebinu said John Orr, a vice-president at the Alberta Motor Association, terminated his employment during the probationary period because he was black and the company had a policy of not hiring “people like you” for management positions.

But the court categorically rejected Ebinu’s racism charge.
